Overview of CSA High School

Want to know what our high school is like???  Watch a presentation given by Mr. Barnett that gives a great overview of CSA High School.*
*Please note that the current presentation was made with a previous version of the school’s website.  Additional courses are added every year, so video may not be up-to-date.

We pride ourselves on our compacted and accelerated curriculum, which allows for highly self-disciplined and self-motivated students to succeed.  Because we go faster in the curriculum than a typical high school, we do maintain a strict homework (http://chaparralstaracademy.com/homework/) and attendance policy to ensure that students don’t fall behind.  For more information about our model, please visit http://chaparralstaracademy.com/admissions/.

For more information about possible electives, please refer to the Elective Descriptions.  A list of high school courses offered at CSA can be found here: Courses Offered at CSA 2017-18.  And a list of typical tracks can be found here: Typical Tracks of Courses at CSA 2017-18.

Each year, CSA produces a High School Profile 2017-18 that outlines certain aspects of the graduating class.

Chaparral Star Academy follows the state graduation plans under House Bill 5.  For more information about how CSA handles graduation, please visit http://chaparralstaracademy.com/hb5-graduation-plans/. The state also provides plenty of information about HB5, explaining the details of graduation including endorsements, distinguished & performance acknowledgements.

Achieve Texas is a great website where students can explore all 16 career clusters, along with associated programs of study.  Here is a short description of the various programs of study: Brief Descriptions of Programs of Study.  For just a list: Programs of Study Master List.
